The WOW has started with a bargain

I was lucky enough to pick up a bargain today, another guy on Res was selling:

  • A Radeon 9800 Pro AGP 8X graphics card
  • 512 MB DDR400 RAM

For $50!!

I put them both into my Vista PC and the WOW has now started! The Windows Aero interface is just so pretty. I really like it, the Flip 3D interface is really cool as well. As for stability, I would say it’s on par or slightly better than XP, but system recovery is much improved.

Unfortunately, Colin is getting the graphics card and so the prettiness is going to disappear tomorrow. But it has given me a nice taste of what’s possible. Thus endeth hands free blog number two.
